It started with proposals—engagement ring after engagement ring flooding my timeline. And then came the wedding photos. Now, the inevitable has happened: My timeline is being flooded by photos of baby showers and babies. BABIES. My high school and college friends are having kids.
Meanwhile, I’m still single (in a relationship but not married), so I will just focus on giving the cutest or at least most practical baby shower presents to my friends and their newborn. Fortunately, their super efficient Bridal Registry where we can pick out the best, most useful wedding presents, Rustan’s Weddings and Beyond also has a Children’s gift registry that can help us get the gifts our mommy friends need and want the most.
I didn’t know about this until a beauty blogger friend, Sabs Hernandez-Dy Liacco, invited me to her own baby shower hosted by Rustan’s Weddings and Beyond, and told us that we can pick out gifts from her registry at Rustan’s. It was so convenient, even if I ended up only having the time to get a gift on the day of the baby shower itself.
Our blogger friend Sabs carries the Boppy Feeding and Infant Support Pillow which FemaleNetwork’s Ira Nopuente and I picked out from Sabs’ baby registry in Rustan’s Weddings and Beyond.
I just went to the Rustan’s Weddings and Beyond office in Makati, asked for Sabs’ gift registry, picked out my gift from the many options with different price ranges available, paid, picked the gift wrapping design, waited for it to be wrapped (free of charge), and walked to the baby shower in Raffles Makati’s Writers Bar.

But even if you won’t be able to attend the event or if you prefer to just have a huge gift delivered to the recipient’s home, no need to stress about packaging and delivery, as Rustan’s Weddings and Beyond offers free gift wrapping and free delivery of gifts within Metro Manila and Cebu. You can also return and exchange gifts within 30 days after the registrant’s event date.
Attendees of Sabs’ baby shower played games like “Style Your Baby” using clothes from Rustan’s.
